MEALS ON WHEELS AMERICA JOINS 60+ NATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS TO URGE SENATE LEADERS TO PASS OLDER AMERICANS ACT REAUTHORIZATION ACT

May 04, 2015
On Monday, May 4, 2015, Meals on Wheels America joined more than 60 national organizations to send a national sign-on letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV). The letter urges both leaders to move S.192, the bipartisan Older Americans Act Reauthorization Act of 2015, to the Senate floor for passage. This bill, originally sponsored by Senators Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Patty Murray (D-WA), Richard Burr (R-NC) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT), would ensure the important continuity of Older Americans Act (OAA) programs and services for the next three years.
